Earlier this week, Lunar Digital Assets hosted its first event in Los Angeles, California, in collaboration with CPChain. CPChain is known mostly for their distributed infrastructure for the integration of IoT and blockchain. Dr. Jack Zhao, CTO of CPChain, showcased CPChain’s IoT integrations, specifically merging the physical domains of public security, transportation, and healthcare with a decentralized network. Dr. Zhao revealed at the end of his presentation that CPChain’s mainnet launch was scheduled for a Q1 2019 release date.
Other local LA-based blockchain projects also came out to demonstrate working prototypes and to evangelize their disruptive value propositions. David Leibowitz, Executive Editor at Everipedia, talked about how Everipedia planned to usher in a new economic paradigm for content creators. In addition to incentivizing writers with IQ tokens that freely circulate within the community, the decentralized encyclopedia database offers a bureaucratic/internationally-censorship-free environment for authors to produce compelling content.
Neyma Jahan, Founder of the Unification Foundation, went in-depth about his team’s mission to make data liquidity more accessible to end users and enterprises through the Unification protocol. During his demonstration, he highlighted Unification’s end-user interface, BABEL, and how businesses would use the BABEL dashboard to buy and sell data sets in an open marketplace.
Lastly, Han Yoon, CEO of Lunar Digital Assets, gave a presentation on the Chromapolis platform protocol, developed by ChromaWay. Perhaps the most notable aspect of the project was how Chromapolis’s SQL-based language, Rell, would enable millions of existing developers to begin creating dApps with little to no prior blockchain experience. What makes Chromapolis unique is how its mainnet builds upon one of the most widely-used database languages in the world: SQL. Yoon also noted how ChromaWay’s long list of existing partnerships with the United Nations Women Blockchain Live Test and Simulation, the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh, and Lantmäteriet (a Swedish property authority), demonstrate their commitment to humanitarian efforts.
